Questions have circled about how the GOP will rebrand itself.

The first step, it seems, kicked off this weekend when a group of prominent party officials - like former presidential candidate Mitt Romney and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush - held a town-hall meeting at an Arlington, VA, pizza parlor.

Romney and Bush are part of the National Council for a New America, a Republican group and "grassroots caucus" that went live April 30. Notably, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, former Speaker Newt Gingrich, GOP chairman Michael Steele, and others are not members.

According to the group's YouTube channel, it plans to use a series of forums, town hall meetings, and an online effort to engage people on topics like economic recovery, energy, healthcare, and jobs.
